    It's that time of year again. With the warm weather, the critters are getting active. Remember to look twice.

    4' Moccasin. We pulled a car out today, and were tossing the fish back into the water. I saw some splashing, and thought one didn't quite make it... And I was right.

    Our team was pre planning a cliff area where kids jump off into the water. We were at the surface and one of the probationary divers screamed "snake" and almost ran across the water. Ended up being a northern water snake basking on a small rock outcropping. So of course, we don't let him forget that and yell snake every time he is in the water.

    All aboard the train to Nopeville!

    Luckily for us we have a very rare rattlesnake in Michigan and that's it for venomous snakes. I was scared to death when swimming in the Tennessee River of these things.
